Are you wondering why your phone always seems to charge at its best using the charger that it came with the packaging? You feel frustrated? Then have you ever asked yourself: “My phone was plugged in all night, why it wasn’t fully charge?” Or have you uttered these following words: “Wow! Why is it that my phone gets hot when I am charging it?”
As it turns out, all of these three questions can be answered by this truth: different devices have different charging circuitry.
For example, you can think of it as a handshake. Another example would be the device iPad which requires 2.4 amps, the Galaxy Note series which require 2 amps, while iPhones require 1 amp and etc. Different power profile for different devices.
Universal chargers, as what they called it, work with any device but they are not made to provide enough or safe charge to any device.
Picking the charger with right charging circuitry is not just about avoiding frustrations but it is more about preventing the occurrence of any problem in the future. Excessive and low voltage of the charger could cause problems. These problems can be the following: poor charging efficiency and wasted energy, it could shorten the battery life and damage the battery and device itself, excessive heating and increased charging times.
Taking into consideration all of these problems then how do you make sure you’re picking the right charger for your smartphone or tablet? Then you must take and follow the following tips.
The first thing you must do would be to use the original charger of the device. There is a reason that when you buy a new set of device it comes with a charger. Due to different power requirement of the device and also the unique relationship of the charger, that is why every packaging comes with a charger.
Next is you must check the optimization of any device for the different type of charges. The devices are quite different from each other brand to brand, so the charger of an iPhone will not give the same charging capacity to an Android phone.
Third is to use voltage or surge protectors when charging devices. Our phones today are some of the most sophisticated electronic devices ever made, however the charger becomes cheaper compared to the past sales. Today, there are no offer for over-current and over-voltage protection and worse no power specifications to ensure that the device you are using is protected. If the charger has no short-circuit or not even an over-voltage protection, the charger may tend to overheat, or burn and your device may get damaged.
Then, you must take heed all these tips in choosing the right charger for your device.
